"We played with heart and often the champion is also distinguished by that, for being able to overcome the setbacks that come along. Also for this reason, I am very happy for today's victory", he claimed.
"Now we must focus on a competition that is very important for us, the Portuguese Cup [Benfica-Rio Ave]. We know that kick-off is a little late [9:15 pm, on Tuesday ], but I'd like to take this moment to ask all the fans to make the effort to come and support us because it is also a competition where we want to go through to the next stage. Here I leave this call", he asked.
